Question: home inspection?
We recently purchased a home that was foreclosed. We knew the previous owners and keep in contact with them on a regular basis. They told us everything that they had going wrong with the house or any problems they were having (really, not much). The home was winterized about 4 months ago. Our real estate agent said since the previous owners are telling us everything with the house, it wasn’t necessary for us to put up the $400 to get the home inspection. I would feel better, however, to at least have somebody come out to look at utilities and termites. Is this possible to do, or when I sign up for an inspection, do I have to get the whole shebang?
I always recommend that my clients get a home inspection. The old owners may not even know everything that might be wrong with the house. “Pay the money it’s worth it”
You can have a home inspection even if you already purchased the home. but you should have done one prior to your home purchase.
Virtually very mortgage lender will require a satisfactory termite inspection prior to generating a clear to close. Most likely you had a termite inspection.
